Sunday 6th February Lodge Lake walk led by Penny - 4 miles

Seven members met at the Lake car park to start the walk.
It was a bit cold and windy to begin with but as usual we soon warmed up. We walked round the lake, not many fishermen but apparently there are very large Carp in there.
There was a very nice feeling of being in the countryside. Very popular with runners and dog walkers. Beryl found a challenge on a balancing  bar but soon realised she needed assistance !

We walked away from the lakes through a very affluent residential area. Very interesting properties. We passed by an Equestrian Centre with beautiful Shire horses in the distance.

We did a detour to visit All Saints medieval Church. It celebrated its 800 Anniversary in 2018. It is a Ecumenical Church, serving C of E, Methodist and Baptist.. We had a very interesting and informative tour of the church.

The cafe for the planned coffee stop was closed so we had our own banana coffee stop.
We then made our way back to our starting point. There was plenty of fast flowing water in the Run Offs.

Beryl enjoyed a walk on the stepping stones in the sunshine.
We all enjoyed a morning together. Another successful Sunday walk.
